in the really recent past. when scott brown was running for re-election against elizabeth warren this past fall, he did pretty much everything in his power to convince the citizens that he wasn't really a republican, that that little "r" next to his name just stood for really nice guy. it doesn't stand for republican. it stands for reformer or bipartisan. >> listen, i'm the second bipartisan in the united states senate. i was recently named as the least partisan senator. we need to sit down in a room in a bipartisan manner. the only way we are going to get it done is to work together in a truly bipartisan manner. >> he ran as far as he could from the republican label during his campaign. there were a few select republicans that scott brown would allow himself to be associated with in his campaign. there were just a handful of republican senators. scott brown was apparently so chummy with that he was willing to tote them around massachusetts with him. >> what an honor it is to be with you today. you know, i'm here because of my great friendship with my colleague, senator scott brown. >> susan co
a chance to reconsider that vote for scott brown was two and a half years later, and in that election, massachusetts frankly ree investigatored to form and picked the democrat. they picked elizabeth warren to oust scott brown from that senate seat he held for less than a term. the elizabeth warren/scott brown race was pretty close by massachusetts standards. the margin in the senate race, this election, had the democrat winning by eight points, which sounds like a lot in a normal state that would be a lot. but in the presidential race, the democrat won the presidential race by a heck of a lot more than 8 points. the democrat won by 23 points. and that is a fairly normal margin by which democrats beat republicans in the state of massachusetts. so given that, scott brown losing by only eight can be considered kind of a victory. it's at least pretty close. and after that loss, that scott brown loss, and than credibly-expensive and hard-fought race, immediately thereafter, republicans wanted to talk about how to get scott brown back to washington. and now today to them it seems so close t
gets a win over scott brown in that closely watched massachusetts race. we'll look at how all the big races play out across the country, what it means for the coming fiscal fight on capitol hill. also ahead, bill karins going to join us from down democracy plaza with an update on this radar map a nor'easter headed straight for some of the same areas wiped out by last week's superstorm. we'll be right back at 30 rock in just a minute. >>> last night president obama became just the 17th president in u.s. hist troy win a second full term in office when he defeated mitt romney to reclaim the presidency. should he serve out the full second term, he'll be the 13th president in our country's hist troy do so. you want to sound smart today? tell your friends that president obama's re-election marks the first time, get this, since 1816 that the united states has had three consecutive presidents elected to a second term before president obama, of course, george w. bush and bill clinton. the last three consecutive two-term presidents were thomas jefferson, james madison, and james monroe. let's g

[applause] >> and we look at ballot initiatives across the country from legalizing marijuana to upholding same-sex marriage. all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. president obama has been reelected to a second term with a resounding victory over republican challenger mitt romney. obama ended the night with at least 303 electoral votes, sweeping the critical battleground states of ohio, iowa, wisconsin, pennsylvania, nevada, and colorado. obama's tally is expected to rise after in florida, were he currently leads romney by over 46,000 votes. in a victory speech from chicago, obama said he returns to the white house with renewed purpose. >> i return to the white house moh determined and more inspired than ever about the future that lies ahead. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours
be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into the senate. i don't think that would be the worst thing in the world for the president, especially since we picked up seats this time around. scott brown, as a republican who may actually across the aisle, could actually serve as a useful political tool for the president. that will be interesting to watch. the other one, of course, is treasury secretary time geithner leaving. one of the outside names that's been floated is cheryl sandberg, coo of facebook. she's the first one and she's had a terrific choice. another name i haven't heard but my virginia centrist byas leads me to bring up is mark warner, senator from virginia, great businessman, has bipartisan appeal. i think he could be strong as well. the last one that's opening up is chief of staff, jennifer g n granholm apparently she is -- >> yes. >> apparently they really want to get her in in some position. >> more jenny g. >> the energy, cheerleading. >> unrelenting positive vibe and energy. >> for jenny g. >> i'd like to get rahm back. not a possibility. >> kerry
the massachusetts senate race for a elizabeth warren over scott brown. i am going to go back to that point. this is the network calling the race for elizabeth warren over scott brown. let's turn to massachusetts for our next guest. >> this is an interesting race because scott brown was deciding -- was trying to run away from mitt romney and the extremists and in a lot of republican platform. i want to bring in a republican guest to works with the american civil liberties union and has been monitoring house some of these issues have played out. kate joins us from massachusetts. tell us the situation in massachusetts right now and how it impacts if it is true elizabeth warren has won these issues? >> i wanted to quote jones who sent a tweet about how difficult it has been to vote for people in virginia as well as florida. let's see if i can find it. he talks about -- he says in virginia and florida people are waiting hours to vote. they have kept the polls open in virginia, and he said its should not take this kind of heroism to vote in america in 2012. stay in line. we have just gotten this
that could go to republican scott brown who just lost his seat to elizabeth warren. joining me now to talk about the wrangling in washington and on the ground in massachusetts is he is square magazine political reporter charlie pierce. welcome back inside the war room. >> good evening governor, just what we here in massachusetts need another reason to think we're the center of the universe. >> well you are the center of your own universe. what does is pour tend that these moderate republicans are not onboard? >> it pour tends that susan collins is afraid of a tea party challenge and they've decided that they're going to make an issue out of this woman. i don't know what she said except say something that wasn't accurate on the sunday shows. they are somehow hallowed. there's something offensive to the lord if you say something to david gregory that's inaccurate. [ laughter ] >> so, do you think that the president will not name her anyway? is she not worth the fight? >> i think she's worth the fight. i hope he does nominate her. i hope he does not back down to this no one sense. this is fal

if john kerry becomes secretary of state in massachusetts? scott brown? >> i think they have to consider that. scott brown lost. he is still a viable. the question is, who would be -- the with the democrats put up if john kerry leaves? >> he ran in an impossible state. i think elizabeth warren is going to be one of the real stars of the new democratic congress, and i can see her in national politics, at the presidential level, really soon. the other really interesting result, i thought, was that initiative in massachusetts -- it is not exactly a party issue. to have legal assisted suicide legalized in the most liberal state in the country, it failed. i think that is because doctors opposed it. >> nina. >> i want to go back to the question of the hispanic vote. i think it would go a long way if republicans did sign-ons to an immigration reform up law. it would not go all the way. the pugh center has shown that hispanics by and large are very hard workers that believe government has helped them succeed. they do not oppose government in the sort of traditionally anti- government way of some
